Ephemera: Winged Creatures of Texas, a new show by well-known artist and environmentalist Billy Hassell, will grace the walls of the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall August 29 - November 13. The expressive paintings, watercolors, and other works on paper featured in this exhibit employ a colorful graphic style and explore the interrelationships of native plants and the birds and insects they support. Make a point to come out and spend some time with Billy's colorful, stylized work that is "informed and inspired by observations of nature".  

To see more of Billy's work, please visit the Campbell Gallery in Fort Worth or www.billyhassell.com

About Exhibits

Botanical art plays an important role at BRIT and we are fortunate to have two exhibit spaces, the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the intimate Welcome Center Gallery, in which to display a variety of art from both well-known and emerging local artists. BRIT joins with the rest of the Fort Worth visual arts community twice a year and participates in spring and fall Gallery Nights.
